Yvonne runs out of “blessers”, while Siseko’s kids Xoli (Sivenathi Mabuya) and Chumani (Ayanda Daweti) know just who’s to blame for their parents’ marriage falling apart. Romeo takes an interest in Chumani, and Anzani receives a job offer that leaves her conflicted. Quinton’s chaotic past comes back to bite him when he takes an interest in writer Hlengiwe, and Kgosi is trouble in trousers for poor Gloria. Later, Romeo speaks up when Mlu’s accused of doing something he’d never even consider at his new job.
Lerumo finds out that Anzani’s gone behind his back, and Mlu and Romeo have to take lie detector tests. Quinton meets Damon’s ex Jennifer (Charmaine Weir-Smith), while Damon has a run-in with Hlengiwe. Boniswa has an unexpected proposal for the women in Siseko’s life, and Jennifer has proof of her sneaky past with Damon but Quinton doesn’t realise why she’s really helping him. Layla gets evidence that supports Jennifer’s claims that Damon is dangerous, while Baby KJ is at the centre of a hostage drama when obsession shoves one woman off her rocker. It’s cover-up time when Ndu’s beloved bakkie falls victim to Kgosi’s mischief, Yvonne has a new wedding to plan, and Mlu lifts his ban on Lindiwe seeing Romeo after an incident at work. Ndu takes a shine to fellow chancer Kgosi, and Kitso returns with a kiss and a tempting offer for Scelo.
Jennifer sends Quinton an ominous message before snatching someone important to him, and Jennifer tells her prisoner what really happened to Damon’s wife. Layla is charged with a serious crime, and Quinton uncovers a damaging truth about Damon. Grace is walking on eggshells around Cesar (Mpho Molepo), the new guest at The Newtownian, and Siseko warns Romeo to watch his step around Cesar. Boniswa and Siseko get a warning about their upcoming arrangement, and someone’s determined to “poison the well” for Yvonne with her prospective in-laws. Yvonne is ordered to get a job but she’s too busy working on media coverage of her new marriage, Scelo is caught between two women and two countries, and Layla offers to take Dintle under her wing.
Yvonne, Siseko and Boniswa get too close for comfort.
